Real, on track to retain the Champions League after beating Bayern Munich - as Barcelona crashed out to Juventus, would effectively clinch the La Liga title you feel with a Clásico victory on Sunday.

Three points ahead, with a game in hand, despite the superior Barcelona goal difference it would look very good for Real if we can secure a Bernabeu win over Barca. Should that happen Los Blancos will surely be champions for the first time since 2012?

Defeat, not that we'll want this, and Real will still be masters of our own destiny in many ways but against a Barcelona side reeling from the Champions League exit NOW is the time for Zinedine Zidane to almost insist we go for the jugular.

If we do this and claim the near title-winning victory it would also give us more breathing space to improve the hopes of becoming the first ever side to successful defend the Champions League trophy as well - a win in Madrid would afford the boss a little more freedom with his squad rotation between European ties in the closing weeks of the campaign.

What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment for Real come the full time whistle.
